RT Review Revue


In a weekend of near-polar opposite wide releases, we discuss the swanky handbag fun of Sex and the City: The Movie and the canvas bag-faced thriller The Strangers. We’ll answer a viewer question and take a look at some artwork from the forums that captures (perhaps inadvertently) the spirit of both films.

Four years after its television finale, do critics think that Carrie and co. remain fabulous in a Badgley Mischka original and a pair of impossibly vintage Jimmy Choo’s? What does “Based on True Events” really mean when it comes to this week’s scarefest? In a summer filled with sequels, remakes, and adaptations, are there any more in the works? Which ones would we hypothetically camp out for?

In next week’s more family-friendly weekend, we’ll look at Adam Sandler’s return to the big screen in You Don’t Mess with the Zohan and CGI animals in the dojo in Dreamworks’ Kung Fu Panda.

Before heading out to your local Multicinedomeplexicon 16, check out this week’s show to see if you should gather the girls (and boys) for some Cosmos and Cavalli on the Upper East Side or don your Sunday best lumberjack flannel before some indoor/outdoor bowel-moving fun courtesy of an unexpected home invasion!
